Leave it to Lady Gaga to continue to break the mold. While most singers go to great lengths to keep their music under wraps before their record is officially released, Gaga has revealed the entire lyrics to her upcoming single "Born This Way" via Twitter.
In a tweet to her fans yesterday, Gaga teased, "Are you ready for the full lyrics?! Can we trend #bornthiswaylyrics!? It has been in my heart for over a year. I'm so excited to share it."
Shortly afterward, she noted, "It's #1 worldwide! That was fast! You're so radical! Here you [go] Monsters, this one's for you."
Gaga then posted the full lyrics to the song, which officially drops February 13 and includes the chorus: "I'm beautiful in my way/Cause God makes no mistakes/I'm on the right track baby/I was born this way/Don't hide yourself in regret/Just love yourself and you're set/I'm on the right track baby/I was born this way."
As Elton John told Entertainment Weekly, "Born This Way" is an empowerment song for all people.
"[It]… will completely get rid of Gloria Gaynor's 'I Will Survive.' This is the new 'I Will Survive.' 'That was the gay anthem. This is the new gay anthem. Actually, it’s not a gay anthem," he said. "It can apply to anybody."
